  • highlight promising new research opportunities, approaches and technologies likely to be impactful for all members
  • lead selected research program-focused as well as center-wide initiatives and activities

There are 15 council members. A typical term is 3 years. 

Council members apply and are selected by the Senior Leadership Council. Additional opportunities to apply will be shared with members.
